Applicant Information. As a recipient of federal contracts, UW–Madison is required by law to request data from applicants for employment in order to monitor our recruitment and selection practices.

Disability and Reasonable Accommodation Information
A reasonable accommodation is any change or modification to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done that enables a qualified individual with a disability to apply for a job, perform the essential duties of a job, and enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those without disabilities, without causing significant difficulty or disruption in the workplace or posing a health or safety threat. Requests for reasonable accommodation are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Information on how to request a reasonable accommodation can be found here or by contacting the Office for Equity and Diversity, UW-Madison at 608-263-2378.
Completing this self-identification form does not mean you are making a request for reasonable accommodation.
New Protected Veterans Information
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a Government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, 38 U.S.C. §4212 (VEVRAA), which requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment: disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans.
In order to streamline the process for both the hiring department and OED, we will run a monthly list of hires by department. We have applicant data that we will enter on the Applicant Data Card. However, we still will need some input from the hiring department.
The hiring department must fill out the Applicant Data Card Questionnaire, which asks for total number of applicants, number of offers made, number of offers accepted, number of offers turned down, and reason for declining the offer.
Once this information has been returned to OED, we can complete the Applicant Data Card and send it back to the department deans/directors.
